Chaosnet for Unix
Chaosnet was an early (pre-ethernet) computer network developed at MIT. It was an early "common bus" packet network, i.e. all the machines shared a single "wire" and sent packets back and forth.
Chaosnet was used to connect many machines at MIT, most notably the PDP-10's running ITS and the Lisp Machines.
The CADR simulator usim can be a client and uses this code to talk to the FILE server ("FILE" is the file serving protocol used on Chaosnet).
This code was initially written by Brad Parker firstname.lastname@example.org
07/11/06 - Fixed FILE server to force everything to lower case (still a bug in close - don't open multiple files). Some macos fixes, doesn't work yet in big endian. Works well enough to support (si:recompile-world).
12/13/05 - Original release.
